Andrew McCormick Maps and Prints

Conibas regio cum vicinis gentibus Wytfliet, Corneille

Description

Engraved print in black depicting what is perhaps the first regional map of the then unnamed Hudson's Bay and surrounding regions. Of particular note is a reference of the "Septem civitates," most likely a reference to the fabled seven cities of gold, noted in the bottom center of the map.
